PERKINSTON — Colin Troxler has been named MGCCC Student-Athlete of the Week for May 22-28.
Troxler, a sophomore from Luling, La., shot a 2-under 282 last week to claim the NJCAA Division II Golf Tournament individual championship. He fired three under-par rounds to start the tournament and was the only golf in red numbers after 72 holes, helping lead the Bulldogs to a best-ever second-place finish.
Troxler has signed with the University of Louisiana to continue his collegiate career. It was his second tournament win of the season. He completed his Gulf Coast career with nine top-four finishes.
He earned Ping All-American and NJCAA All-American honors. Troxler also won the Arnold Palmer Trophy for winning the national title.
